The Veldhuis Law Group
Nathan is an Attorney and Counsellor at Law who is peer-reviewed AV (4.9 of 5.0) by Martindale Hubbell (the highest possible peer-reviewed rating for Legal Ability and Highest Ethical Standards) and who has been peer-reviewed and selected as a Super Lawyer, a position reserved for only the Top 5% of all Attorneys, and who is ranked 10/10 by AVVO (National Attorney rating entity and peer to peer and attorney to client connection service). He has spent his entire career representing persons and family members and friends of individuals who have been injured or killed through no fault of their own, by the negligence of other people, corporations and the state and federal governments.

In starting the firm, Nathan brings with him significant experience throughout the Commonwealth, from interning for the Hon. B. Waugh Crigler, United States Magistrate Judge for the Western District of Virginia (Ret) while in law school directly to practicing at Tremblay & Smith, PLLC in Charlottesville, Allen, Allen, Allen & Allen’s Fredericksburg office and DiMuro Ginsburg in Alexandria, Virginia.

Nathan has practiced his entire career in all manner of federal and state personal injury cases from “fender benders” resulting in injuries that don’t heal as quickly as a person or members of their family might hope, to major and catastrophic motor vehicle, trucking and motorcycle collisions resulting in deaths, catastrophic physical injuries, emotional and mental injuries, and taking on large nursing home and long term care facilities for injury and death of patients, and the likes of Walmart and other massive corporations, major chain restaurants, service stations and grocery stores in cases involving slip-and-falls and trip-and-falls.

Nathan has a proven track-record of success handling personal injury cases in federal court. Many times, these are cases, which are begun by other attorneys, which are subsequently removed from state court to federal court, and are referred to the Veldhuis Law Group because of Nathan’s unique expertise in aggressively prosecuting federal personal injury cases. These are cases (which many Virginia lawyers withdraw from, or send to the Veldhuis Law Group as soon as they are sent to federal court, because of the extreme procedural complexities required by litigation in federal court) involve cases against huge Trucking Companies, involving terrifying trucking crashes caused by the negligence or aggressiveness of the truck drivers, along with cases against the likes of Walmart, Lowe’s, and other massive corporations. These giant Companies virtually always remove cases from state court to federal court where Nathan has a demonstrated track record of success spanning 15+ years, notwithstanding the ever-changing procedural complexities of federal court in both the Eastern District of Virginia (the so called, “Rocket Docket”, because it is one of the fastest moving Judicial Districts in the entire country), and in the Western District of Virginia, and, in conducting his busy federal personal injury practice, has been able to recover significant amounts of money for his clients.
